My daughter, my heart:
I watch my daughter play alone in the yard. She is strong and independent. She discovers the world in solitude.
I watch my daughter play alone, working out the ways of the world, and I want to join her. I love her, and she may not know it. I love her, and she may not care.
I leap at her joyful play and twist at the sight of her friendless.
Little wisps of fear and love trail from my heart as I go out to meet her.
